THE RETURNING FAVORITES: AMANDA KIMMEL

AGE: 23

SEASON: Survivor: China

AMANDA SAYS: ''I know things about [fellow Favorite and China castmate] James he doesn't want people to know. And he knows stuff about me. We could be worst enemies, or we can become allies.''

JEFF PROBST SAYS: ''Amanda knows how to play Survivor. She knows how to build an alliance, how long to keep it, when to get rid of it. She's very good at looking at odds, she's very good at assessing if [she's] better off against this person, or with this person. And you need that. Survivor only thrives when you have people who will continue to turn and switch and make moves. Amanda's in great shape, she does well in the challenges, she's beautiful, and she knows how to play.''

Here's hopin that Amanda and James have an advantage over the other fan faves because they were on the most recent show. question: I'm just wondering if the super fans would even know about her because didn't this one begin while Survivor China was airing?

I'm sorry, I know she talked a good game last season, but in the end, she clung on to Todd like a tick. She turned on James & Denise when she could have booted Todd & Courtney and walked with the win.

She did nothing but let Todd make all of the decisions and do all of the work. I thought she was disappointing and got what she deserved...nothing. "Great player"?? when??

Her mistake was not taking Todd out when she had the chance. Letting Todd be the bad guy would have been fine if she took him out before he got to the Jury. I think she played a good game. She didn't ruffle any feathers, she took out James when he wasn't expecting it. She just made some key mistakes.

The beauty of this next season is it isn't about being a "great player." It's about being a fan favorite. Amanda definetly fits that bill.

Kayo you are right... This was being filmed during China, but the filming is only 39 days and the show is on much longer, so I believe they were back in time for the start and the end, but I could be off on my timing...

Thanks, Yana- I knew I could count on you! :kiss:

Well, hopefully it will still help Amanda and James to have the super fans not as familiar with them...or maybe it will hurt them- only time will tell!

Wow she got even more hotter then last season lol.

Im happy too see her back hopefully she will make up for last season and learn not to trust people too much same with james.

I think she will make it to the merge but i could see her being voted out early due to revenge from james or for just being a good palyer.

Yes, she has two boobs. But does she have two good feet to stand alone on? I don't care for human backpacks who let others tote them through a game. Wait, I don't like humans period. Next...
